Mrs B shouted "Make him Captain" during the post-match coverage.

This will probably be seen as heresy on here but I really think that he should be team captain.... with Jack staying as club captain.
His leadership qualities are natural.... and he leads by them!!

Nah I don't think it's heresy. Certainly not from my perspective anyway.

Jack is a lot of good things, but an able captain isn't really one of them. I think he should be allowed to focus fully on his game tbh.

Tyrone should be captain, but I feel like some of the recent Dean is persisting with Jack is because he gets 0 protection from the ref. Being captain means he can at least directly question the refs' decisions any time he's being bullied on the pitch and the decisions aren't going our way.

No. Jack is Captain. Tyrone is and can still be a Leader on the pitch.

I'm quite happy for us to have seven or eight captains on the pitch at any one time, like we had in the early eighties. But I wouldn't take the actual armband of SJG. It would seem like punishing him, and he's done nothing wrong. Plus he seems popular with his teammates.

Jack made it clear how proud he was to be made captain and inspired us to promotion.  Taking the captaincy off him now would be massive kick in the bollocks and counter productive. 

Tyrone will act like a leader whether he is captain or not, so why upset our best player for the sake of it?

Definitley this.

He's done really well; what a move coming to Aston Villa was for him.

Sky Sports were in our office today interviewing people about when Mings used to work with us.

Guess there is a lot of screen time to fill in international weeks.

Did you know him Dave?

"Know" would be a bit strong. My interactions with him extended to getting a quid off him for the first goalscorer sweepstake in the work football match and half a game of being overshadowed by him in that football match.

A mate of mine started at the same time as him and knew him pretty well. She's a little bitter that his career in the last eight years has gone rather better than hers.

Excellent on and off the pitch from Mings.

It did strike me though how times have changed when England fans are being lauded for their anti-racism.

Ermm yes. But it's all relative. There are still pockets of imbeciles in there.

Agreed, he's always been a genuinely good bloke but a lot of it has gone under the radar. Now he's at a big club and getting international recognition it's going to be great to see him set up as a role model.

Tyrone doesn't need an arm band to make him captain.
I'm happy to keep things as they are

Beat me to it Olly. Is England cured of racism in football? Not even close. But relative to many nations in Eastern Europe itís significantly better or should I say less tolerated in the sport. There is a denial that exists in countries like Bulgaria that has to be addressed first and given recent comments within the sport there they donít even have the desire yet. It will be many years before it is eradicated and the truth is in needs to start in regular society; schools, govt, workplaces before it makes its way into sport. In England wankers will always exist but they are the periphery now not the norm. Bulgaria its still very much the norm.

I suppose you could say that. Hard to believe it's over 20 years since England fans were giving the Nazi salute and tearing up the seating in Lansdowne Road in Dublin. Certainly the game has come along a lot in this part of the world since then. But obviously not elsewhere.
